    Hmmm

    Would have to be the ones with stories in them. My cookbooks are in storage so I can't read the titles.

    actually....all recipes.com or the internet....i do better this way then with a traditional book. there are too many recipes i'd never use in a book to justify buying it. Seems i have the same problem with cd's. I like one or two songs not everything on an album....

    The Better Homes & Gardens Cook book, then, my copy of Southern Cooking from 1970......Other than those two, I just make it up as I go.

    Mrs. Beeton's book of household management (1861):

    I've made a couple of things out of this one. It's fun to look through. :)

    I have quite a few cook books but seem to make only one or two recipes in them. My newest favorite book is My Excite search or google, I can find tons of recipes for whatever I feel like making. May in Jersey

    I too, have a lot of cookbooks. There are two that really show I use them: a cookbook published by a ladies auxilairy of a local fire company in 1952 and a Pennsylvania Dutch cook boklet that you can probably still pick up in gift shops in Lancasater, pa. There are pages that are so messed up! I should know those recipes by heart really!

    The one I keep inside my brain.

    I learned to cook from my Dad, he never used a cookbook. Always by taste and smell. I do have cookbooks, measuring devices. But I do most of my cooking by memory and dry ingredients are measured in the palm of my hand.

    I love the Fixit and Forget series of crockpot cookbooks. I really don't like cooking that much- but crockpot cooking I can handle.
